I made my first two hubs yesterday, one "commercial" type hub and one "fun" hobby hub. Although neither hub is going to win a creative design award, I think they're both decent, especially the postage stamp hub. A bit eclectic, but nothing that would drop my overall rating to 0. The hubs themselves are ranked 64 & 65 and slowly rising.
I've read that overall rankings drift around and often drop at the beginning, and I did notice a slight drop while I was making the Hubs, but zero seems a bit extreme.
If anyone has any suggestions on improving the hubs I'd appreciate it!
It's my main man the Cheif! I beleive it was demonstrated in an earlier thread that the author rating system is either based on magic or somebody is just making shit up.
I made a bunch of pages and then went to dinner and actually ate some food. When I got back my rating had risen from 5 to 11. So my advice is A: sacrifice a newborn lamb. B: go to Arby's.
Yep - that seems to be the case - I'm up to 4 now. Infinitely better than 0 - won't see that sort of increase again.
Thought I'd see if I was missing anything Hub-wise / Design-wise.
I'm a bit squeamish - Maybe I'll just sacrifice a hamburger somewhere and hope no one notices.
One way to increase ratings is to contribute to the Forums. Another way is to research HubPages for similar topics and advice and to read the HP FAQ. This is not a new situation and has been discussed frequently.
HubPages = hubs, not lenses.
The rating system is not based on magic. There are several factors that influence it. Read around the site - FAQ, search the forums, search other hubber's hubs.
This site is packed full with how-to's, tips and advice for new hubbers.
welcome to HP
Your hub scores benefit from key words and word count more so than witty writing. (Not to say you should not be focusing on quality writing - it matters, but not in terms of your initial hub scores) Find hubbers with high author scores and read their hubs to see how they are setting them up.
When you are publishing, take a look at the types of capsules available. Learn what they are, and make good use of them.
Your scores will adjust for you. No need to worry this early in your HubPages career
Also there is an occasional lag, or malfunction or glitch-- it will all work out, "pay no attention to the man behind the curtain".

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or...
